Le Nouvel Ensemble

We run a developmental programme in Chelmsford, Essex which aims to provide writers with the opportunity to have their work given a dramatised reading in front of a public and supportive audience. The opportunity affords the writer the chance to get constructive feedback on their work, to aid not only the development of that piece but their development too.

We run LNE nights on the first Thursday of every month in Chelmsford, Essex.

To submit a play for inclusion, read the below guidance and then get in touch!


  • Scripts must be between 15 and 20 minutes long;
  • Scripts can be for theatre, film, radio, television or any other medium;
  • Scripts should be original and not adaptations of existing works etc.

We also add to our pool of local actors for LNE evenings, and so if you would like to be considered for this, please contact us.

To submit work or for more information you can contact Mad Apple Collective via madapplecollective@gmail.com, via Facebook or via the Contact Us form on our site.
